Criminally ignored album by top band,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Special Beat Service (Audio CD)
The singles from Special Beat Service(Save It For Later, Jeanette & I Confess)all narrowly missed the top 40. I can only put this down to lack of airplay/changing public tastes because the singles & Special Beat Service are brilliant.
Save It For Later is still my favourite Beat song - it's worth getting the album for this alone, but there's so much more. Sole Salvation deserved a single release while tracks like Sugar & Stress and End Of The Party hint at what might have been had Dave & Roger not jumped ship and split the band.
There are nods to the band's reggae influences as well which makes for a mix of styles which is as refreshing now as then.
If it's hits you want, get I just Can't Stop It, but for sheer quality this is THE Beat album.

Agreed. A superb and diverse album and overall the best of the three.
